Jaguar XF review - Interior, design and technology

Modern design, plenty of tech and extra space make the XF a great place to sit

As before, the XF is offered in both saloon and estate-bodied Sportbrake shapes. Following the model facelift in 2020, both versions get a revised rear bumper, while the saloon features smoked tail lights.

Other exterior changes are equally subtle: the front gets a new bumper design, which features deeper, wider vents, a reprofiled grille with a new insert and LED headlights as standard.

All cars are well equipped with standard kit including 18-inch alloy wheels, a powered boot, rain-sensing wipers, dual-zone climate control, leather upholstery, heated front seats and front and rear parking sensors.

Moving through the range brings bigger alloy wheels, an automatic high-beam function, keyless entry, adaptive cruise control and an upgraded audio system.

Sat-nav, stereo and infotainment

Jaguar engineers and designers have clearly spent most of their time creating a truly fresh interior for the XF.

The cabin includes a totally redesigned centre console, with a new 11.4-inch curved glass touchscreen taking pride of place. The screen controls Jaguar’s Pivi Pro infotainment system, which features sharper graphics and a more polished, user-friendly interface, which now adds most key navigation, climate and audio functions onto the main display. 

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both standard, while a 400W Meridian audio system is offered with the HSE trim level.
